I don't normally forward beowulf mailing list items to this list but  
I got a chance to check out the Crosswalk Inc. storage gear when they  

Their gear is quite interesting and matches with many of the cluster  
shared storage use cases I've seen in the life sciences.

Seeing as this is a presentation to a DC-area Beowulf users group I'm  
sure the content will be more technical than 'market speak', now I  
just gotta figure out how this whole 'ogg vorbis streaming' thing  
works. heh

> create a scalable shared infrastructure model to create and leverage
> economies of scale across the physical infrastructure. This enables
> multiple applications to seamlessly share the underlying resource  
> while
> providing any single application with the view as if it had dedicated
> resources.
